WIMBLEDON, England — Two former members of the Virginia men’s tennis team will be in action this week at Wimbledon. Somdev Devvarman will compete in both singles and doubles at the All England Club, while Treat Huey will compete in doubles.
Devvarman, currently ranked No. 68 in the world in singles, will make his Wimbledon main draw singles debut when he plays Denis Gremelmayr of Germany in the first round. Wimbledon is the only grand slam tournament that Devvarman has not previously played in the singles main draw.
In doubles, Devvarman is playing at Wimbledon for the third consecutive year. This year he teams with Kei Nishikori of Japan for the first time. The duo plays Rainer Schuettler and Alexander Waske of Germany in the first round.
Huey, who is currently ranked No. 91 in the world in doubles, will team with former Old Dominion All-American Izak van der Merwe of South Africa. The duo, who reached the final of the Nottingham Challenger last week, advanced to the main draw with two wins in the qualifying draw. They will play 11th-seeded Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman in the first round.
Play begins at Wimbledon on Monday. Neither Devvarman and Huey are slated to play on Day 1. For complete information, visit the Wimbledon website.
